Lent term 1 - Playlist

Ssh...what's that noise? A bash? A crash? A shake, a rattle or a low, bass hum? which do you prefer - an acoustic singer or a booming brass band? A solitary voice singing sweetly and quietly or a magnificent choir lifting the roof. 

Take out your ear plugs as you journey through the valley of sounds and find out about instruments, the sounds they make and how they are produced. Discover how sounds are made and which sounds travel the furthest!

There is so much to learn on our musical journey this term. 

Here are some of the key words we will be using in our learning about potions:

pinna                         ear drum (tympanic membrane)                     ear canal

cochlea                     ossicles                   anvil, hammer and stirrup            vibrations 

sound insulation     instrument             trumpet             guitar               woodwind

brass                         strings                     percussion         flute                  xylophone

decibels                     tempo                     pitch                   volume             rhythm 

Ask an adult or look in a dictionary if you don't know what any of them mean.
